G. A. M02; nun/v0 Patented Oct. 11, 1949 UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE SHOWER PAN CONSTRUCTION Glenn A. Morthland, Los Angeles, Calif.

Application October 7, 1944, Serial No. 557,678 6 Claims. (01. 4-146) This invention relates to shower bath construction, and particularly to the construction of the shower pan.

In my patent No. 2,239,969 I have described a waterproof composition shower pan to replace metal pans theretofore employed in the construction of shower baths such as stall showers. In such construction the composition shower pan was placed on the sub-floor and the usual coating of cement or tile was placed on top of the pan and a sub-drain placed in the floor.

As is well known mortar or concrete is not waterproof and seepage of water through the concrete may readily occur. Additionally, it is subject to cracking due to settling Of the house or other structure or to other mechanical shocks.

I have now devised an improved construction which gives a greater assurance against leakage or seepage around the sub-drain or through any cracks or fissures which may be generated in a cement or tile floor laid over the shower pan.

I have devised an improved composition shower pan. The shower pan is constructed by mounting a cement box on the sub-floor. The box has an intermediate layer of asphalt, tar

or water impervious plastic, thus forming in as is disclosed in the patent referred to above.

While I prefer to employ such asphaltic or plastic intermediate barrier layers, I may employ, to obtain some of the advantages of my invention, other types of barrier such as lead sheets or copper sheet, or other corrosion resistant material.

I have also devised a new and useful manner of mounting the sub-drain when employing my novel construction of a shower bath floor and my improved composition shower pan.

The shower bath construction according to my invention is formed by casting or otherwise forming or mounting a mortar or cement or tile box upon the sub-floor or joists. Provisions are made in such box to pass the drain for the shower bath. In the box forming the floor of the shower bath is positioned a layer of asphalt or composition shower pan to form the water impervious diaphragm. This material may be brushed or sprayed onto the interior of the outer box. the hot molten asphalt or tar may be mopped onto the interior of the outer box.

A second layer of concrete, mortar, or tile is formed on the interior of the first-mentioned Thus, when employing asphalt or coal tar,

box. The second box is also provided with a hole in registry with the hole in the outer box to accommodate the drain. There is thus formed a concrete tile or mortar box containing an intermediate layer of water impervious material which forms a water impervious diaphragm.

Instead of employing a coating of asphalt or tar to form the intermediate diaphragm I may employ a pro-formed shower composition shower pan such as described in my Patent No. 2,239,969. In that patent I have described a composite shower pan formed of layers of felt, burlap, and asphalt encased in paper or other material for convenience of handling and folded and formed into a box-like structure which may then act as a shower pan. Such form of shower pan may be employed in my present invention. After forming the outer box and either before or after the concrete or mortar has set or cured, I may then insert the composition shower pan and then cast or otherwise form the inner concrete or mortar box into the inserted shower pan. I may separately form the inner box of concrete or mortar or tile. It may then be set in place. The composition shower pan is then placed in position, provisions being made for the sub-drain by cutting the necessary registering holes in the several elements of the floor. The inner tile, concrete or mortar box may be separately formed and the formed box may then be set within the composite shower pan.

By employing the composition shower pan and the sub-drain element hereinafter described I am also enabled to form a water-tight seal around the sub-drain element. To accomplish this purpose the composition shower pan is employed as a sealing member for the inserted subdrain. By this method I solve one of the great troubles encountered heretofore in using inserted sub-drains in shower bath floors. It is common experience that cracks develop around the edge, the inserted sub-drain causing water seepage through the shower bath floor. By my method I insure a seal which avoids this difficulty.

This and other objects are accomplished by the construction which will be hereinafter described in connection with the figures, in which Fig. 1 is an isometric assembly showing a part- 1y broken away section of the construction;

Fig. 2 is a section taken through the sub-drain showing the method for sealing the sub-drain into the floor;

Fig. 3 is a plan view partly broken away showing the elements of the sub-drain;

Fig. 4 is an enlarged section showing the impermeable diaphragm construction;

Fig. is apart broken away showing the sheet of composition to be folded into a box or pan to be inserted into the shower pan of my invention; and

Fig. 6 shows a modification employing a metallic diaphragm.

In Fig. 1, I is the joists supporting the subfioor 2; 3 is the studding or framing of the shower bath. The shower pan floor is formed by casting or otherwise forming a cement or mortar: or tile box 4 which is set upon the sub-floor) and recessed in the studding as shown at 5. This pan may be cast in place or may be separate.- ly prefabricated for insertion. The box 4. may also be formed in sections for assembly on the job.

2 The water impermeable diaphragm 6 may be formed as previously mentioned or as hereinafter described. This impermeable diaphragm is encased and supported by box 4 and its walls carry up to the top 5 of box 4. The inner box 1, also formed of concrete or mortar or tile, is set upon the impermeable diaphragm 6 but the contiguous walls of the box I and diaphragm 6, except at the front end thereof, are not as tall as the walls of the outer box 4 or the diaphragm 6, as is se'enat 8. The wall 8 is preferably beveled inwardly as shown at 9. The laths Ii] are carried down to the top 5 of the wall of box 4. It is preferable that the surface of the diaphragm 6 be a substantial continuation of the surfaces of the laths ID so as to permit a plaster or tile coat II to be placed on the walls of the shower bath down to the top 8 of inner box I. The surface I I then forms. a continuous wall surface with the inner wall of the box I. 'The described wall construction of the stall shower applies to the side and back walls. As usual in stall showers, the front of the shower stall is open and means are provided for hanging a curtain or door on such, open portion. The front of the box thus acts as a sill or guard. The continuous walls; of the outer and inner boxes 4 and I and the diaphragm 6 are of equal height at the front portion and may be capped as shown to give a pleasing appearance and also to prevent water seeping in between the boxes and the diaphragm. As will be seen, the boxes 4 and I are independent of the side walls or the, sub-floor of the shower stall in that they are a separate unit apart from the walls or sub-floor. However, the walls of the boxes may be joined to the walls of the stall by the usual construction procedure, such as by til-- ing or by plaster, etc.

The box 4 carries a drain cup I2 which may be positioned in the mortar or concrete of box 4 before it is set. The cup I2 carries a threaded nipple I3 to which is attached a drain pipe. The composite shower pan when employed as the water impervious diaphragm 6 has a hole I4 cut in the diaphragm of such diameter as to leave ah overlap I5 which is tucked into the cup I2.

A plate I6 carrying a depending nipple I1 is held in place by bolts I8 screwed into bosses [9 provided underneath the cup I2. The plate It, bearing against the overlap I5,makes a tight seal between the underneath side of the overlap I5 and the interior of the cup I2. Due to theplasticity or give of the composite shower pan 6:(for example, that shown 'in-Fig. 5) awater-tightseal between I2 and I5 is thus formed. Means are thus provided for clamping the overlap at the edge of the hole in the outer box to seal the surface of contact between 6 and 4 at the edge of the hole in 4. This, as has been stated, prevents any seepage of water between the box 4 and pan 6. The drawing down of the plate I6 by the bolts I8 will not only clamp the pan 6 against the edges of the hole in 4 but also, due to the plasticity and give of the pan 6, will wedge against the contiguous edge of thehole in I to seal the edge against passage of water between the underneath side of I and the contiguous surface ofthe pan 6. If desired, in order to assure such water-tight seal the underneath side of the overlap I5 or the interior of the cup I2 at the overlap may be coated with asphalt, tar, or plastic cement impervious to water. The plate I6 carries drain holes 26 for the purposes to be hereinafter described. A drain plate 2I carrying perforati'ons 22 and a removable perforated clean-out plate 23 is carried on plate I6 by means of the nipple 24.

The inner box I has a hole 25 of a diameter equal to the plate 22 to form a chamber 26. Water run-off from the floor of the shower bath passes through the perforated plate 23 into the nipple 24, from nipple 24- into the interior of the cup I2, and into the drain I3. Run-off may also pass through perforations 22 into chamber 26, through openings 2Il into the interior of the cup I2, thence through the drain pipe I3. The edges of I4 and II are sufficiently spaced to prevent accumulation of water under plate l6.

While a Specific andhi'ghly useful form of subdrain has been described above, my invention may be employed with various forms of subdrains. Such sub' d'rains are particularly useful in any invention it the overlap I5, as described above, may be seal'ed into the sub-drain to form a water-tight joint to produce the functions described above.

In forming the composite fiocr according to my invention, the boxes 4 and 1- may be cast in place or be separately prefabricated. In either case the box is sturdy with considerable mechanical strength sufficient in itself to form a structural member of the stallshower, as, for-instance, to form the continuation of the wall 'II and to add to the supporting power of the joists 3. The water impervious coat may be applied on the job by m'opping in the asphalt or tar, as has been. indicated, or, preferably, by employing the composite shower pan previously described. In utilizing the composite shower pan, I have found the following method of construction of the shower pan to be preferred.

I lay a sheet of paper such, as kraft paper or ordinary wrapping paper 21. Upon sheet 2'! I lay a sheet of asphalt impregnated roofing felt 28 so as to leave a strip 2Ta at the edge which may be. foldedfovenfas will be described below. On top 'of the asphalt saturated felt 28 I lay a layer 'of burlap '29. I then mop the burlap with hot asphalt so that. it will saturate the burlap and seep. between. the burlap 29 and felt 28 and coat the surface of 28 as well as the burlap 29. For this. purpose I use. a road oilv or coal tar or cut-back asphalt or an asphalt of relatively low melting point. On top of the asphalt coated burlap and before the asphalt is cool enough to becomeviscous or tacky I lay a sheet of asphalt impregnated felt 3,I.'|- si1nilar to the sheet 28. The sheet 28 and burlap-'29 and. sheet 30- are all of the same size and are so positioned as to leave the edge 21a previously referred to. Upon the sheet of felt 30 is placed a sheet of paper 3| of 5. the same size; The strip, 21a is coated with asphalt or other cementing material, such as rubber latex or plastic cement and the edge 21a is laid over to overlap the sheet 3|. As a result of this construction'the asphalt saturated burlap is cemented between two layers of asphalt impregnated roofing felt by a thin coat of asphalt or tar, as distinguished from arelatively thick layer of plastic material; The" thin coat, just sufiicient to coat the burlap and the adjacent layers of roofing felt, gives a lighter bond and a better seal between the layers. Such a composition will have superior water resistant properties and will be a better barrier to water seepage. A hole M is then cut in the center of the sheet as previously described. The four ends of the composite sheet are then creased to form a pan or box for insertion into the shower floor as previously described.

If it is desired to ship this pan for erection n the job, the edge 21a may be folded over to form a fiat sheet and the sheet suitably creased to form a box or pan but the upright wall of the pan folded over to form a fiat sheet, as is shown in my above mentioned patent, for ease of shipment. The pan 6 is then formed on the job by unfolding the creases to reconstitute the pan. It is nested into the outer box and the inner box placed or nested into the pan 6 as described above.

As has been stated above, I may employ a metallic diaphragm formed of copper, lead, or galvanized iron or other suitable metal. The metal diaphragm or pan may be formed as by stamping to fit inside the box 4 (see Fig. 6). A suitable drain hole [4' similar to I4 is provided to register with the drain hole in 4. An overlap I5 is also provided so that it may fit between I6 and I2 similar to the overlap l5. The overlap is dished to fit snugly against the cup I2. I also coat the metallic diaphragm with asphalt or tar so that an asphalt layer separates the metallic diaphragm from 4 and from 1. This protects the metal from corrosion by the box I or 4. This feature is of considerable importance, particularly if the boxes are formed of cement or other corrosive material. It also prevents any electrolytic corrosion of the metal. The asphalt coating also permits of a seal at the edges of the holes in boxes 1 and 4.

The asphalt layer is also placed on both sides of the overlap. Additional protection against corrosion is also provided by setting a felt washer 26a or an asphalt or tar-saturated asphalt washer 26a between the overlap and the cup I2, and, if desired, an additional like washer 212; between the overlap and the plate Hi. This reduces the corrosion which may occur at this point either in the diaphragm or in the plates 12 and I6.

Where I employ a composite pan described above and illustrated in Figs. 2, 4, and 5, the separation of the plate 16 from the cup l2 by the composite pan protects the plate l6 and cup I2 against corrosion which is present due to the contact of the plate [6 and cup l2.

While I have described a particular embodiment of my invention for the purpose of illustration, it should be understood that various modifications and adaptations thereof may be made within the spirit of the invention as set forth in the appended claims.
